The Power of Camu Camu
Camu Camu is an Amazonian fruit with a unique phytochemical profile, strong
antioxidant potential and strong anti-inflammatory potential. It is considered
a premium superfood due to the high concentration of nutrients and powerful plant compounds, including vitamin C found in the berry.

Camu Camu is loaded with vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, which can help prevent oxidative stress and combat free radical damage to our DNA. Though free radicals are a normal by product of cellular function, too many can be formed as a result of stress, poor diet, and exposure to toxins and pollution. When free radicals out number antioxidants in the body, this can lead to oxidative stress, linked to chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Studies show that the combination of antioxidants including vitamin C found in camu camu berries offer more powerful antioxidant effects than vitamin C alone.
Chronic inflammation negatively impacts the health of your cells and has been linked to conditions like cancer, heart disease, and auto immune disease. Camu Camu fruit pulp contains ellagic acid, an antioxidant that has been shown to inhibit the inflammation-triggering enzyme aldose reductase.
Improved Weight & Blood Sugar Levels
Eating Camu Camu berries is associated with having better digestive health and a higher bacterial diversity in the gut microbiota. Studies suggest the Amazonian berries can even reduce body weight by increasing the number of burnt calories and positively altering gut bacteria. A study has shown how the berries can also reduce spikes in blood sugar.
